By Kenneth Araullo

No-code insurance platform tech provider INSTANDA has named Kevin Gaut (pictured above) as its new chief technology officer (CTO).

In his role as CTO, Gaut will lead the platform and ecosystem strategy, leveraging INSTANDA’s architecture to deliver value to clients and focus on educating the industry about the advantages of no-code versus low code. His key responsibilities include close collaboration with current and prospective clients to pinpoint new growth opportunities within the insurance technology sector using the INSTANDA platform.

With over 25 years of experience in senior technology leadership roles spanning the UK, US, and Asia, encompassing both insurance and financial services, Gaut most recently held the position of CTO at Finova and previously worked at SSP and Legal & General.

His appointment follows INSTANDA’s announcement of a $45 million fundraising deal led by Toscafund, a European growth equity investment firm specialising in financial services companies, which was made public one year ago.

“We are delighted to welcome Kevin as our new CTO. His extensive experience and proven track record in driving innovation make him the ideal leader to enhance our platform and create even more value for our clients,” INSTANDA CEO and co-founder Tim Hardcastle said. “With Kevin’s strategic vision and expertise, we are well positioned to accelerate our growth plans and continue to empower and enable insurers from across the globe to create positive change for their businesses and end customers.”

Earlier this year, CEO Hardcastle also spoke to Insurance Business on difficult problems and complex opportunities, and why it can all be traced back to speed and simplicity.

INSTANDA was named as one of the Top Insurtech Companies in Global 5-Star 2023. Learn more about the winners in IB's special report.
